Tripod and head for scope

I need some advice please.
I've just taken delivery of an Opticron IS60, but unfortunately it fit on the Hama tripod I use for my photography.
Can anyone recommend a reasonable tripod with head, don't want to spend too much as I spent most of my spare money this month on the scope.

uhm whilst accepting that this is good value for money when buying a scope from in-focus (its 39) then 109 may be a little steep.

The IS60 is not that heavy so you don't need to spend a fortune. something from Velbon or Pyser for 70 or lower should be fine.

Manfrotto do some tripods for under the ton the 728B can be got for 80 for example

Thumbs up

Velbon Sherpa 600 from W/E is basically the same as the Infocus Delta (but better - splittable columb and adjastable angle legs) also a lot cheaper.

PS ...... Although not advertised, mine came with a case so dont go ordering one at the same time!
